Hotel-Gasthof Goldener Greifen
Ranked #1 of 34 Rothenburg B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 October 2013

This hotel is in the perfect location for a stay in Rothenburg! There is parking for hotel guests behind the hotel, and once you are there, you do not need your vehicle until you leave.

There is so much history in this town and in this hotel. We opted for "comfort rooms" and we had so much space - it was really more like a suite. Of course, the door frames are low and the baths are tucked in any way they could fit them, but this is all part of the charm. Beds were very comfortable and the hotel is spotless. The breakfast room was lovely, and the staff was very nice and helpful. This is obviously a family affair, and they all work very hard to be sure that everything is perfect. We had good wifi in our room, but our traveling companions had more difficulty.

One other point - the restaurant in the hotel is very good and very popular. We highly recommend both the hotel and its restaurant.

Three couples stayed here in mid-September. We purchased the special with a three-course dinner, admission to the Criminal Museum, and a ticket to the Night Watchman’s Tour. We were very pleased! The dinner was chosen for you with a delicious soup, salad, entrée of pork, and a yummy dessert of vanilla and chocolate ice cream covered with fresh fruit. This meal was so good that we dined there the next night on wild boar stew and fish!! Once you park your car behind the hotel you can easily walk the entire town! The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. Wifi was spotty!

We stayed at the Gasthof Goldener Greifen for one night and thought it was great. We had a big comfortable room and its location in the old town of Rothenberg can't be beat...Just off thr main market squate. The service was friendly and helpful. Free parking at the back of the hotel was great as driving and parking in the old town is tricky. They also let us stay parked for hours aftrr we checked out. The breakfast was traditional and you can specially order eggs to your liking. My only complaint was the wifi which doesn't reach beyond the second floor. They need a repeater which would solve this simple inconvenience.

Also, try the restaurant for lunch or dinner!

You walk out the front door and you are in the center of town. Walk any direction to see anything. The hotel just seems like you have gone back in time a few hundred years and I mean that in a very good way - it just looks like something in a movie. So many restaurants and the hotel restaurant is just as good as any of them. Staff was very helpful anytime we asked for anything. Not sure it makes sense to stay anywhere else in Rothenburg.

The hotel is very well situated. It has personality but is also clean, comfortable and well run. The staff was friendly and helpful. A big bonus in this crowded little historical town is that the hotel has its own parking for guests.

All the other reviews are spot on. The location its great, the staff very friendly, the food its great and well priced. I would love to come back again and again. Don't forget this hotel its just over 600 years old so has its own charm you don't get in a chain hotel. Very well done

Due to a canceled flight by United, our stay at the Goldener Greifen was, sadly, only one night. That said, this was the best nights sleep I have ever had! The location is absolutely fantastic, being just south of the town square. Our room was surprisingly large, although the bathroom was very small. The room itself was clean and comfortable. Our room was upstairs, overlooking the patio eating area. It was quiet at night.

There were three highlights of this hotel. The first was the quaint atmosphere of sleeping in the Mayor's house from 1408. The second was the excellent food in the restaurant. Third, was the reception by Frau Ursula. She was so kind and most accommodating of our troubles with our cancelled flight. We had reserved two nights, but only used one; Ursula only charged us for one. Our room was reserved with just an email; no credit card was even requested. Ursula even stored our luggage for a few hours after we checked out so we could tour the town unencumbered before our departure. My wife and I are planning another trip to Germany; Rothenburg is one of the destinations and the Goldener Greifen will be our hotel. We absolutely love this place!
